We bought an ecotec in october 2011. We like the stove and it heats the house. I like the fact that you can run it from onboard tstat and it shuts off or it runs and drops off to minimum. The problem we have had is the cleaning required. I have nothing but good things to say about the dealer. It was dealer installed. He has back many times to try and get it set up properly. The stove is basically needed to have a complete cleaning on a monthly basis(sometimes more). We use only the pellets that the dealer suggested. The dealer has suggested we switch to a quadrfire classic bay 1200. I was just loooking for thoughts on ecoteck or quadrafire.
